Wonderful stay here in this amazing hotel. Really loved the design, certainly the coolest building in Cologne to stay in. Great room, we had one of the duplex suites, so much space to relax in with lots of nice little extra touches (the lip balm on the pillows each night was particularly great idea!) The bed was perhaps the most... More

I chanced upon a very good last minute offer for this Hotel and decided to stay there rather than our usual preference, the Crowne Plaza. What a good decision; this modern hotel based on a historic tower is tremendous.

Great location, great breakfast, friendly staff but I expected more of the building. It was a nice experience but I don't think we would go back. It s a hotel that isn't far from the Christmas market so that's a big advantage. Another advantage is that they have a private parking.

This "hotel" is in a converted water tower, and the architecture is quite stunning. It has been done up in some style, and it's priced accordingly - meaning it isn't a great value exactly, but it is very cool. The bar is also extremely expensive, though very well fitted out. If you want to go upscale and you don't mind... More

I stayed one night on business, and the hotel was booked for me, so I had no idea what to expect. I immediately loved the quirkiness of the water tower, and the beautiful way it had been restored inside and out, with lots of exposed brickwork, tall arches and a 360 degree balcony all around the floor my room was...

What an amazing hotel! The very friendly lady at the reception was very welcoming, was able to speak in many languages and made us happy with a double upgrade. Great, if you have a prettier room available why not offer it to your clients? It made us feel special! The room (suite) was a beautiful, spacious, light accomodation with a... More

(water tower). it was expensive but i tought worth it. actually according to the experience we had, the price of a hostel or camping would habe been more appropriate. we arrived late and we had...

The managing staff was completely unprofessional & rude upon check in. We had a room booked for one suite & one regular room. They had assigned us the wrong room. Instead of correcting or even admitting the mistake, we were told that was the room that was booked & dismissed. When another co-worker had approached the reception with the same... More

stayed 2 nights. Location is ok, short walk to main attractions. Staff were not very pleasant except for the barman who we had a great chat with (as he had completed his apprenticeship in Ireland!) The rooms are quirky but get far too warm = no sleep I'm afraid.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in December 2014. The hotel staff were excellent from arrival to departure and nothing was too much effort. The room was in great condition (a few marks/small stains if you want to be picky!) and was cleaned to a good level on a daily basis. We ordered room service during our stay,... More
